Borders: landscapes on the alert...

The exponential growth of the urban population and its sprawl over the territory generate transitory peripheries, causing the disruption of physical, social, cultural, landscape and ecological connections. Happening, whether within the core of the cities or between cities as wells as in the rural areas, such breaches become evident in the formal structure of the city, in their inhabitants perception and particularly, in the administration and government policies.


Fragmented water edges, altered wild river beltways, wooded borders loosing biodiversity, as well as communities affected by a territory unsuitably managed contradict the fact that geography and landscape do not respond to administrative borders. The cost of interventions wrongly planned is immense and the responsibility belongs to all.


Borders as transition spaces are regarded more as spaces of articulation than as a boundary. They offer an array of potentialities specially within the rich and diverse milieu that characterize the majority of the territories of our region. However, such opportunities have often been missed and sometimes annulled. Borders offer multiple opportunities that allow for the deployment of creative and articulated interventions in terms of ecosystem, social and functional scopes.


To understand the edges' logic and to take action, there is a need for a balanced, multidisciplinary and integrative approach that will move from ecology to urbanism, from biology to architecture, from geography to economy, from literature to music. Along this planning process there is certainly not only one right scientific approach. Therefore, it is fundamental to consolidate a synergistic approach.

2012 为了理解边界的逻辑并采取行动,我们需要一个能够涵盖从生态到城市化、从生物到建筑、从地理到经济、从文学到音乐的均衡的多学科综合方法。在规划过程中,正确的科学方法绝不止一个。因此,整合出一个协同研究的方法非常重要。

Thus, we open the discussion on these powerful and dynamic territories to examine, from the holistic, interdisciplinary perspective, and openness that characterizes Landscape Architecture, all the possible interpretations available and search for new design expressions and management.


_ How to recognize and understand the landscape borders?

_ How do inhabitants of the borders relate to their landscape?

_ How to achieve a preventive management approach rather than a remedial one, when addressing a landscape border issue?

_ How to take advantage of the world-wide experiences without impacting our specific milieu?

_ What role can border agreements and common areas management play?

_ 如何识别和理解景观边界?

_ 边界中的居民与景观之间有何联系?

_ 当处理与景观边界有关的问题时,如何获得一个预防性的管理措施而不是补救性措施?

_ 如何在不影响我们特有的环境的情况下,利用世界上的有关经验?

_ 边界协议和普通地区管理措施有什么作用?

Through Landscape Architecture, as the analytical and project oriented discipline, resides the need to explore new forms of intervention to generate, from the potentialities, interests and aspirations of the local community, an effective connection between the physical and environmental recovery of the urban and suburban space, and the inclusion of the impoverished social groups that live in these areas.


Landscape architecture emerges as a platform for local community development, taking upon the challenge of structuring synergies and complementarities between the improvement of the habitat resources and the creation of productive activities


The border landscape must be rethink, not only as a social responsibility, but as a high priority.
